HEA planning annual meeting

Candidates, by district, are incumbent Mike Nugent (Kenai, Nikiski district); incumbent Debbie Debnam and Ed Oberts (Soldotna, Sterling district); Loren Ahlers, Jenny Dewees, Brian Hirsch and incumbent Roseleen (Snooks) Moore (Kasilof, south Kachemak Bay district). Ballot Proposition 1 would amend the bylaws of the cooperative to eliminate the nomination of director candidates from the floor at the annual meeting.
